Lotus Elan

Fuel injection anyone?

PostPost by: john.p.clegg » Tue Feb 13, 2018 3:33 pm

Dear All
Does anyone want to play with fuel injection? If so for a small fee I am ready to pass on my " home-made " system which constitutes two sets ready to fit the Ford/Lotus twincam engine , one is individual throttle bodies , the other a single throttle body , also in the mix is a flywheel drilled for the 36-1 Ford pattern and " stand" for the Ford ignition block etc.etc.

Removed prior to sale of my Plus2,Dellortos re-fitted , increased economy from 28 to 38 mpg with no loss in power/tractability. First time starting no matter what the temperature.

Due to the bulk , would only like collection Manchester.UK.

No ECU, sorry , the Megasquirt is going on the Morris Minor.

Photos on request..
Price...not a lot.

Thanks

John :wink:

PM for more details

thanks John. interesting set up. Copper tubing no less.
and I thought the distributor was difficult to get at with Strombergs in the way. Looks nearly impossible to get at now?
